**The Contraction Mapping Principle and Some Applications**

by Robert M. Brooks, Klaus Schmitt

**Publisher**: American Mathematical Society 2009**Number of pages**: 90

**Description**:

These notes contain various versions of the contraction mapping principle. Several applications to existence theorems in the theories of differential and integral equations and variational inequalities are given. Also discussed are Hilbert's projective metric and iterated function systems.
